fighting for florida electoral votes it will be close. in 2008 president obama beat mccain. but it shows mitt romney is slightly ahead there. >> poll precinct workers are showing up first voters will line up. we are on the west side of the critical i-4 corridor. and the south florida miami-dade and brower tend to vote for democratic nominee and northern and panhandle a lock for the republican. and that's why the swing corridor is so critical. four years ago obama won boy 7 points and before that bush bet kerry by 7 points and there is a lot of enthusiasm and competition between mitt romney and president obama. early lines of and days of voters in broward and palm beach county and yesterday, another 45,000 early votes state wide and select counties allowed in person absentee ballot and technically and legally it was set to end 7:00 p.m. democrats filed suit and tried to extend the hours and governor scott never agreed to that and those were not extended. here are the early look. floridians. four and half million floridians have already voted in the presidential election . there is roughly
in some of the battleground states that could decide it all. governor romney headed to florida, virginia, new hampshire, and ohio. in fact, he and president obama are both in columbus right now. the president also visiting wisconsin and iowa today. bruce springsteen is along for the ride on the president's plane and warming up the crowds for the commander and chief. president obama is asking his supporters don't give up on me now. but governor romney says the president has not delivered the change he promised. >> tomorrow we begin a new tomorrow. tomorrow we begin a better tomorrow. this nation is going to begin to change for the better tomorrow. your work is making a difference. the people of the world are watching. the people of america are watching. we can begin a better tomorrow tomorrow and with the help of the people in florida, that's exactly what's going to happen. >> governor romney is a very talented salesman. and in this campaign he has tried as hard as he can to repackage the same old bad ideas and make them out to be new ideas. and try to convince you that he is all about ch
? >> look at ohio, he's up six. virginia, up 21. florida, romney is up five. elections are won in the middle. barak obama had the same type of edge that romney can boast that he has now. remember, obama went on to win 54 to 44 john mccain. look, i think that's the most troubling number and i would point out by these new fox polls as well, it shows it's not just independents that the president is losing. he's actually down nine points among white men. six points among women. and four points among that critical youth vote that propelled him to the white house. all around every demographic, the president's underperforming and especially in that early voting. he has a 1-point -- 14-point deficit to what the president had before. these are all indicators that this election could go in romney's favor. >> gretchen: that's the demographics. let's talk about the issues with regard to the latest polls. who do you trust to handle the economy? juan, on these four fronts, it looks like romney is edging president obama, in some cases big margin, specifically on the economy, 52 to 43 p. are you surprised
even in a close race. let's go through this. north carolina, florida, virginia. are you comfortable? >> look, in the realclearpolitics average which is a lagging indicator all three of those states plus indiana are comfortably out of the obama column where they were in '08 and into the republican column. >> sean: what do you make of michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania and wisconsin? really in play? >> wisconsin obviously is. i do think there is something real. you know, full disclosure i'm involved with american crossroads and we are are spending over $2 million in pennsylvania with television. we could have taken that money and plunged it into the existing battleground states. there is a real opportunity there and moved without the benefit of campaign activity. >> sean: you were attacked by paul krugman as having benefited financially, et cetera. >> i saw that. he wrote a piece in which he claimed that the reason i was involved in american crossroads is because i was a shrewd businessman and lining my pockets. i'm not against making money out of politics. he didn't bother to pick up
